Module 2 is theory-based and focuses on the creation and development of children’s classroom curriculums. A large component of this four day workshop is how to reach our human potential in bringing about balance and discipline in body, mind, emotion and energy. This study of self-alignment is meant to teach children how to establish a relationship with self while appreciating and acknowledging themselves as spiritual beings having a human experience. You will also learn how to encourage children to create or shape their lives in conjunction with yoga.
Children’s curriculums to be explored in Module 2 are:
Mindfulness and yoga
Self-regulation and state-changers
The power of rapport and language in the classroom and with parents and teachers.
Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga to children.
Creating children who are not victims but masters of their own destiny. This is established by teaching the discipline of yoga and the balance of mind, body, emotion and prana.
Teaching children about colour and colour therapy.
Bringing an awareness of the chakras and how to teach these and their associated yoga postures to children.
Creating an awareness of the senses for children and the life skill applications associated with those senses.
Teaching children to work together using partner postures.
Teaching children alignment and proper posture.
Teaching self-esteem and self-confidence to children.
A practical on children’s yoga alignment using equipment, bolsters, blocks, hoops, sticks and other props.
An intensive group workshop on developing lesson plans.
How to market and develop yoga retreats, workshops and holiday programs.
Practical Once you’ve completed Modules 1 & the above portion of Module 2, the next step is practical-based and requires you to teach 50 hours of children’s yoga in an environment of your choosing. We can provide suggested pricing for you to charge per child or per class depending on how you choose to complete these hours. Module 2 is an exciting time for you as an instructor as not only are you gaining invaluable hands-on experience, but you are now creating a source of income for yourself. This income will, in all likelihood, actually pay for your participation in the Yoga4Kids Teacher Training (Modules 1 & 2). To give you an idea of the earning potential: 12 hours of teaching (10 children per class once a week) will generate an income for you of approximately R12 000 if you adhere to our suggested fee structures.
